Foundation Tuwapende Watoto

Today's children bear the society of tomorrow!


"Tuwapende Watoto" in Kiswahili means "we love children."

The Tuwapende Watoto Children's Foundation is a charity in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. It provides orphaned and abandoned children a loving home and a good long term education for their future.

Tuwapende Watoto is a politically and religiously independent organization.

The Foundation has run the orphanage since 2006 with 25 children between the ages of 2 and 21. In 2010, it opened a nursery and a year later a primary school. Currently about 400 students visit the Tuwapende Watoto Nursery and Primary School.

The Foundation is officially registered as an NGO in Tanzania. It is funded through private and institutional donations. The largest part of the administrative work is done by volunteers in Switzerland. We guarantee that almost 100% of the donations are used locally.
